Ask an IT guy, “How much would be your income at the age of 30?”. He may give you a stunning answer.

But put forward another question, “What is the retirement age of an IT employee?”

Oops, he may stay dumb!

How many of your colleagues in your company are aged greater than 40?

Have you ever thought or counted? If not, Do!


You need to know how your life would be at the age of 45.

Don’t you know this reality? You will definitely know.
Even I know. But still, I’m an employee of an MNC.

You may get pissed off with your company’s behavior or your boss’s behavior. You may shout out loud within yourself saying that you want to quit.

But you will never do. You know why?

Here are the few reasons that prevent you from quitting the IT job even if you think you want to.

♣ The CTC

They welcome you with a sound package of 2.5L per annum if you are a fresher.

Which means a fresh talent’s COST TO THE COMPANY is purely attractive.

But when years roll on. The word ‘Appraisal’ rules your destiny every year.

You need to have extra skills like laughing at your boss insane joke to save your CTC.

♣ Credit Card Bills

If you take your purse out of your pocket in front of your colleagues, you should have a credit card.

If not, you are not a dignified IT professional.

This thought doesn’t allow any IT employee to quit.

♣ Social Status

Planning to get married?

More such social statuses will be lost if you quit your IT job. Right?

♣ Weekend Trips and Movies

IT employees most weekend will be occupied.
You always want your weekend to be a stress buster Saturday or a blockbuster Sunday.

For this, you will definitely plan to watch a new movie release or a nice trip with your friends once a month.
